South Dakota Rental Application

Once the application is accepted, the landlord will have the legal right to verify the tenant’s credit report, employment status (and history), renting history, and any references included for the character of the individual.
Once a tenant is approved the landlord will write an agreement and ask for any security deposit (if necessary) with a maximum of one (1) month to be asked from the tenant according to Statute 43-23-6.1 (unless the tenant presents a higher than average risk for maintenance to the premises.
